NPD to Host Community Safety Day May 18

The Norman Police Department (NPD) will host a Community Safety Day for residents looking to dispose of unwanted documents, prescription drugs, and ammunition. The event will also offer information and resources from Norman Animal Welfare. 

The NPD Community Safety Day is rescheduled for Saturday, May 18 from 9 a.m. to Noon at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds, 615 E. Robinson Street.


Norman residents can take advantage of the following free disposal opportunities:

Document Shredding: Residents can bring up to five boxes of documents to be shredded by Absolute Data Shredding. The free shredding event was created to provide citizens the opportunity to properly dispose of documents containing sensitive information, keeping their personal information out of the hands of criminals.

Prescription Drug Disposal: Residents can bring any outdated, unused or unneeded prescription drugs to be disposed of in an environmentally responsible way. The Pharmaceutical Take-Back Program will be held in partnership with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics. Please do not bring syringes, liquid medications, Epipens, or inhalers.

Ammunition Disposal: NPD will provide an opportunity for residents to drop off old and unwanted ammunition to be destroyed. No explosives are allowed.


Other community partners such as Norman Animal Welfare will also be onsite to provide safety resources.
